Jean-Marie Massaud.

Advocate of organic design.

Designer Jean-Marie Massaud.

nature-inspired design.

A volcano. Clouds. Waterfalls. Jean-Marie Massaud is inspired by nature to an unparalleled degree. His organic design is famous all over the world. In particular, the sensational football stadium in the Mexican city of Guadalajara. Situated in the middle of a volcanic landscape. Which is why he designed it to look like a volcano. Perfect architecture, which respects both the topography and the environment.
His unique style is reflected throughout: from the product design through to the architecture. His creations are intended to have an effect on people. And to create a better living space for them. Heavily influenced by the beauty and usefulness of the natural world, he loves to combine design and architecture.

The bathroom of the future. For Massaud a landscape. Dreamed up in the AXOR WaterDream. Implemented in the form of organic taps, wash basins and bath tubs.

Organic bathroom design. Even when it comes to the mixers.

A bathroom landscape. Featuring natural materials. And organic shapes. The bathroom is a place of retreat from hectic daily life. For Jean-Marie Massaud, it’s all about the basic elements. Their positive impact. And the sensuous experience of water. “I believe that design can awaken true emotions in people.”
In conjunction with Jean-Marie Massaud, AXOR developed a bathroom collection dispossessed of technology: AXOR Massaud. Mixers with a sensuous waterfall. Accessories and wash basins which echo the shapes found in the natural world. A bath tub resembling a lake. The natural world, perfectly implemented.
